Our Aims...

 

We are passionate about developing agility, balance and co-ordination through fun and varying basketball sessions. Check out more about the FUNdamentals of Movement here; http://www.sportscoachuk.org/sites/default/files/Coaching-For-FUNdamentals_3.pdf

We believe that starting basketball at a young age will allow children to develop more than just the physical skills associated with the sport, but also increased teamwork, confidence and transferrable life skills.

 


The Coaches...

 

TEAM1

 

We are all current players, playing for Dunfermline Reign Ladies Basketball Club, and competing in the Lothian League.

Laura and Clair have known and played basketball together since both attending Queen Anne High School, 25 years ago. Carrie has known them both for 10 years, after all meeting while playing for Dunfermline Steel Ladies, before the move to Reign. Because of this, we all know the social and health benefits that can come from playing a team sport like basketball.


CLair1

 

Clair has 13 years P.E. Teaching experience at High School Level, has a HND in Sports Coaching and Development, and is a Sports Leader UK Tutor. Clair now works Part-time at Inverkeithing High School, since having her son.

 

LAURA1

 

Laura is a current Head coach for Reign U14 Girls and Assistant for Reign U18 Girls. She also coached Twilight Basketball sessions in Lochgelly for 3 years.

 

 

 

ME

 

Carrie has 10 years experience coaching Outdoor Education in Fife, for all ages, in varying and challenging circumstances. She coached alongside Laura at Twilight Basketball sessions in Lochgelly and is Head Coach of Reign U16 Girls.

 

 


Since starting in 2015, we have slowly been expanding our classes, and are happy to introduce our new coaches and volunteers, all of whom we believe will be great positive role models within the sessions...
